For those who have loved ones living in assisted care facilities, they might never have considered that they would need to be worried about the other seniors who are staying at the nursing home. There have been thousands of cases of sexual abuse that have been reported in various nursing homes throughout the years, and we've heard about various nurses and others being found guilty of abuse and worse. But what often doesn't occur to many who have a loved one living in these places, is that there is great opportunity for their loved ones to be victimized by other seniors who are staying at the venue.
For many of the seniors who are living in these facilities, they suffer from some form of dementia.
These medications also come with dangerous side effects and quite often they don't efficiently address the cognitive deficits that are related to the illness.
With many nursing facilities said to be struggling with ongoing staffing issues, it's creates a problem that involves residents being left angry and unattended, to the point where a number of people have lost their lives as a result.
Cannabis Succeeds Where Big Pharma Fails
When anti-psychotic medications are seen to fail at addressing the cognitive deficits that are related to the illness, researchers have alleged that cannabis succeeds.
Researchers from Israel have also found that cannabis, particularly THC, might be beneficial in helping to alleviate symptoms related to dementia, by restoring the memory and reversing the brain's aging process.
For those assisted living facilities that might be looking for a way to boost the quality of life for those living there, and make things a little safer, they might want to consider embracing cannabis as an option. And for the states that have made legalization changes, care facilities in those areas have been struggling to adjust to the changes in determining whether or not their seniors should be afforded the freedom to medicate naturally.
Some care facilities have already taken the step to engage in cannabis education forums with the seniors living at their venues, as well as permitted their employees and others to use cannabis on the property. A growing number of nursing homes in the US have already established their own policies when it comes to the cannabis use of their residents.
